Found this at http://applianceguru.com/forum2/7688.html ... take off the bottom front panel below the door ... 3 screws ... then reach up under where the door lock is ... there is a round tab that hangs down ... pull it and it releases the door lock.

With the power off, push a screw driver or similar in the aperture of the door lock, and push it from side to side, this should release the door lock, if it does not, then you will need a new door lock fitting.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

The washing machine's door will not open, it sounds like it is unlocking but it isn't.


Unplug the mains cable and wait a couple of minutes to ensure the lock is not energised. If it is stuck in the locked position you can try banging the location of the lock on the front to see if it will unstick itself. Failing that, the only way to gain access is to remove the top cover of the machine and try to reach the door lock from the inside.

Door will not open at end of cycle


Possible that the safety link to the end cycle is not released. So check from the bottom to see the lock settings and check if the release link is stuck or the lock by itself is jammed.
Use a good degreasing spray like WD40 to remove any jamming in the door.Once released use the spray to wash off all dirt or foreign material from the lock setttings. The open and shut a number of times to clear the lock movement.

Whirlpool duet washer door is open. I can't close it because the latch is stuck in the "locked" position.


The first thing to try is to hold the cancel button for 15 seconds. The more labor intensive solution is this: Remove the panel beneath the door (2 or 3 screws). Reach up, there is a little "ring" beneath the door lock. Pull this down, it releases the mechanism.
